1950 Aston Martin DB2 Fixed Head Coupe

    The Aston Martin DB2 was introduced to the world at the 1950 New York Auto Show. One of only 410 made, this neglected classic was rescued in the summer of 1989 from an old garage in Vicksburg, Mississippi and brought home on a flatbed - Chevy engine and all!

    By fall, the car would be completely disassembled. The chassis was the first reconstruction task to provide the proper foundation for the rest of the car. In 1990, an authentic 3-liter engine was found in the States and sent to a shop in California for rebuilding. At the same time, a proper transmission was located and reconditioned to working order.

    The body, while mostly complete, required considerable attention and several panels were replaced. The remaining small parts, of which the list seemed endless, came directly from England.

    Work progressed on this car intermittingly over the next thirteen years. In 2013, the car was ready for interior work and paint and was sent to a shop in Chicago for completion. In 2015, the engine was installed, and this car was road ready for the Colorado Grand events.

    Features include the 3-liter inline twin-cam six-cylinder engine that produces approximately 120 horsepower backed by a 4 speed David Brown synchromesh transmission, along with aluminum body coachwork by Aston Martin.
